On Easter Sunday, my buddy Paul invited me to ride with him and several other cyclists on the new velodrome. For those of you who don’t know, a velodrome is a track with huge banked turns built specifically for cycling. This one is pretty unique because it is one of only a few indoor ones in the States. Its also special because its so short. Only 142 meters long. The banking on the turns gets up to 45 degrees and when you’re hitting that at full speed, it can be a bit scary. Scary, but wicked fun!

Being a spaz as usual
Working the pace line

Nailing the corners

This was my first time riding a track, and its kinda obvious because I’m not right on the wheel of the guy in front of me. I was a little nervous.
